Join As An Individual

In and out of disaster response, Austin Disaster Relief Network (ADRN) serves those in need. With the help of volunteers working along-side our efforts (Community Volunteer or Network Volunteer), survivors and those in crisis are able to receive relief through the compassion at the heart of EVERY volunteer serving within our organization. Choose your pathway to volunteer and help by #BringingHopeIntoCrisis.

Become A Network Volunteer

By joining ADRN's Network of Greater Austin Churches, an individual has the option to:

  • Advance through our special training program pathways
  • Work directly with survivors through various volunteer opportunities
  • Deploy with ADRN wearing our official ADRN Yellow T-Shirt and Badge recognized as an official identification during deployment
  • See below for additional Network benefits

ADRN Yellow T-Shirt and Badge will be available only to volunteers who complete online volunteer registration, agree to the Statement of Faith and complete an ADRN 3Hr Orientation and Preparedness course. (Volunteers with a sex offender offense on their record or convicted of any crimes against minors will not be able to receive an ADRN badge or an official ADRN yellow t-shirt).

After Individuals review and agree to ADRN's Statement of Faith, each individual may follow the steps on How to Become A Volunteer page to join the network as an individual.
